Good thing my great grandfather Clem was a brilliant man! When he invested in this big tractor years ago..he knew that it would have to be big enough to fit ALL seven of his great grandsons!
He would be so proud to see all of his greatgrandsons now and their love of big green tractors!!

We never met Great Grandpap Clem but we know he is looking down with a big smile!

I have been enjoying life without a line! Today we took off the bandage!

I have been really enjoying playing with my cousins!!!

Thanks for your prayers! Big days and weeks ahead!

Today I did a good job increasing the blood pressures of my teachers and my family. I'm okay now!

During school today, without warning, I stopped playing and decided to lay on the floor of my classroom. I wouldn't talk, answer questions or look at my teachers. All I wanted to do was sleep in the middle of the floor.

Mom got a phone call describing the above and that I felt warm.

Knowing how I get sick fast and furious without any warning, Mom went into overdrive on the phone

"Okay I'm on my way. What's his temperature? Is he looking you in the eye or is he acting like he is drunk? How is his breathing? Is it rapid? Is he talking or responding to questions? What's he doing now? Is it an emergency? Okay, don't let him fall asleep until I get there"

As soon as Mom arrived at school, I became more responsive and started to cry.

I'm much better now! I think I was dehydrated from being NPO for most of the day yesterday. And then I didn't want to drink today probably from the anesthesia yesterday. So mom used one of my medicine syringes and kept giving me little bits of water until I perked back up. Ofcourse Mom threatened me that if I didn't drink that we were going to the ER.

It worked! Mom then made me salty soup broth and I drank 3 large bowls of broth!!

This big stinker face is the result! I'm so hydrated now that I accidentally peed all over the kitchen! Woops!

Sorry for giving all my favorite teachers a big scare today! I'm so lucky that I am so loved by them all!!! Xoxox! I was in great hands but now they all have a few extra grey hairs

My line is gone!!!

Now I am doing what I do best....

1. Not listening to a word anyone says

2. Eating

3. Eating Cookies

4. Yelling at Mom

5. Watching Finding Dory

6. Demanding more food

7. Taking apart my monitors

My nurse told me to only eat a very small piece of cookie....what did I do....I decided small was relative...this 500 calorie cookie was small compared to the big cookie cakes at the store...so yes if anyone asks I ate small! 😁😁😁

Thank God I held it down bc I would have gotten in trouble!!! 😂

Hey Cookies make my stats go up!

Thanks for your prayers! I am doing much better!

Now I have big dreams....roll in the mud like a pig and jump in a pool!!!

Full steam ahead!!!

xoxoxo

Good Morning friends and family!

We are getting ready in the pre-op holding area. I am about to get some bloodwork, a type and screen as well as some platlets. Thanks to all of the generous blood donors out there especially those who have recently donated platlets for me!!!

I was originally scheduled for 10am but Mom delayed me because she couldn't make a decision....she thinks too much, her brain runs like a Nascar race 😂 Varrrrruummmmm!!!!

Thanks for your prayers!!! I'll let you know when I head back!
